RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has renewed its agreement with ebm-papst to supply high efficiency fans and motor products from the leading global manufacturer throughout the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

The partnership between the two companies spans more than three decades, and today RS retains the most comprehensive stocked offer of ebm-papst products in the market, covering a wide range of Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems, fans and thermal management products and accessories.

Latest innovations include the ACi4400 and S-Panther fan series, which utilise motors with ebm-papst’s GreenTech EC technology to improve performance at a fraction of the energy usage and cost of conventional motors. GreenTech EC motors are used extensively across the ebm-papst range of fans and provide maximum energy-efficiency and low operating noise for diverse cooling requirements.

RS also stocks a wide selection of ingress protected IP68 fans from ebm-papst, designed to perform in harsh environments such as high dust, high humidity or direct water exposure, both indoors and outdoors. A range of fan kits and assembly options is also available to RS customers, providing quick and efficient ventilation solutions.

Sandra Jarvis, ebm-papst Commercial Director commented: “We have worked together with RS for more than 30 years to successfully deliver the latest fans and motor solutions to customers globally. Over the past decade this has grown from strength to strength with the introduction by RS of online resources such as DesignSpark, which allows us to share knowledge and content with engineers. We are true partners in every sense of the word, both focused on a common goal of providing innovation and ease of access to a wide range of products and solutions.”

Steve Keep, RS Components Global Account Manager added: “This renewed agreement with ebm-papst underlines our continued commitment to provide customers with fast, easy access to market-leading motors and fans for applications across many different industries. Its GreenTech EC standard puts ebm-papst at the forefront of sustainable, economical motor technology, and through our ongoing collaboration we are able to offer an unrivalled breadth of product choice.”
